DUKE, a mid-thirties bachelor, has learned this lesson the hard way. His business has failed, and the savings he?d built, while living a dual life as both a high school teacher and a professional gambler is gone. He is also feeling emotionally bankrupt as his Thai girlfriend, ARRAYA, a beautiful and compassionate young lady, is harboring a desire for marriage.
This realization sends Duke into an introspective journey deep within the echo pool ? the place where past lives reside ? in order to learn from his past and find direction for his future. His life in Bangkok is an exciting one, as his wealthy Thai friends are generous entertainers; but no matter what diversions he finds within one of Asia?s most exciting cities, everything seems to trigger the memories of his lost home.
But if Duke wants to survive, he must relive the lessons of his father ? as painful as those recollections are ? in order to find his roots and strength again.
